dc.description.abstractA growing problem in the southwestern United States is the increasing demand on the water supply by development, agriculture, and resource conservation. This study presents a hydrologic assessment of the Arivaca Creek Watershed, a small rural watershed in southeastern Arizona. A hydrologic simulation model, ARDBSN, was applied, along with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and a stochastic weather generator (CLIGEN), to simulate the effects of stock ponds and a lake on the potential groundwater recharge of the watershed. The annual water yield reduction to the downstream recharge zone due to stock ponds and the Arivaca Lake ranges from 35-52%.
